What causes hot flashes, heart palpitations, tingling below feet and light-headed feeling?
Yes it can be due to anemia
Hi! Welcome to health care magic!
Thanks for sharing the details. Based on the history you have shared, it is quite possible to be due to anemia as moderate to severe anemia may be symptomatic and it usually mat present woth fluctuating fast heart beats and breathing difficulty on small exertions and with tingling in extremities including feet and then increases with activities which reduce oxygen supply and increase oxygen supply. Hemoglobin is basically transporter of oxygen and when it is low, heart has to push more, lung have to breathe more to meet demands and when still it is not met, it feels like numbness, tingling in feet or hands or dizziness on standing.
Get to your GP and get hemoglobin levels tested alongwith detailed complete blood count. If it is lower then 8 g/dl, you may asked for blood trasnfusion but if it lower than normal but above 8, intravenous iron replacement after checking iron levels. Also get a detailed evaluation for the slcause of anemia as anemia needs extensive workup to locate and treat the causes leading to it and can't be ignored by just replacing it.
Stay assured it's not that worst.
Hi! Thanks for sharing more details. Well to put this briefly together, scenario is not that worst as you have put it into. You need to do few things or beware of certain warning signs. Of their is any sign of bleeding or blood loss in stools, or urine or with heavy periods or black colored stools you need to seel medical help immediately. Also that of 9ulse or heart rate is very high for large interval and is accompanied woth sweating or severe apprehension or extreme shortness of breath, or fling of getting dizzy so much so that maintaining posture becomes difficult, it needs urgent medical review and complete blood picture alingwith EKG. Otherwise it can wait till the dates you have mentioned. And in abscene of all these symptoms you need to relax a bit as anxiety may worse n the situation. Meanwhile you can use supplements of iron, folic acid and B12 and don't fear of treating the cause as that will do more good than harm.
